When I went out to search
It was time
I left my parents’ home
I wanted to break away
And leave everything

I sought the one my heart loves
Who gave me the manna
When I found him
I held him and would not let him go
I went around the streets
I cried out, I raised my voice
Where is my beloved
Where is my life
Where is the one my heart loves
When I found him
I held him and would not let him go
